Last weekend was the Ontraxs show. A model railway event in the Netherlands.
Some photo's I take overthere. I can't remember all the names of the layouts or the builders so my apologies for that.

An Italien layout:









Little industrie layout:







English (based) layout





An Dutch 3D layout. This layout is only 45 cm deep but it was build was perspective so it looks much more. Only thing was it was looking right only when you are standing right before it. I guess you have to see this one in person to see the real beauty of it.







A little layout base on a wine factory:











A layout with a sugar mill/factory in Indonesia. My personal favorite of the show.




















More later. Hope you enjoy.

Alwin

Alwin,

Thanks for posting these pictures. They are a really great set of photos, so many "teachable" ideas going on in all the layouts.

I agree with you and think the Sugar Mill / Factory is also my favorite.

Yep, I like the sugar line photos the best. Nothing like a little bagasse in the tender!

As promised, here is part 2.

Litlle layout named "Justin Versaitou":



Layout named Mocanita, thought it is based on a Romanian railroad.







Layout based on a Belgium tramway:

















Next a small diorama. The train was riding but the hole dio was turning also. It has three little scenes on a very small space (the trestle, the ore bin and the watertower).







A lot of small layouts on the show and so is the next. It was a island was a lot of nice details.









The last for part 2, a Dutch scene. A little flat scenery but that is what we have here in some regions of the country. But the scenery and buildings were of very high quality. Sadly the public couldn't come very close to the layout to watch all the details.











The end of part two. I've got three layouts more for you guys. (If you want to see)

Alwin

Thanks Alwin - it is always interesting to see what other modellers are doing.
"The Island" looks vaguely Southern European.

Regards,             Michael

Hi Martin. I was there on saturday. Somewhere around 15:00 by the Mitropa stand. So, yes we met but I haven't introduced myself, I've done that last year but maybe you don't remember because you were busy with your layout back then.

Did you finish a lot of tree-frames?
